Which is Best? CoolSculpting VS 360 Fat Freezing
It can often be difficult and confusing when trying to decide which non surgical fat-removal procedure is best. Each option has its own list of pros and cons, and what’s best for one patient may not be best for everyone. So in this blog post we will look at the differences between 360 Fat Freezing and Coolsculpting.
What is CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive, non-surgical, fat-reduction technology that was created by ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. Unwanted fat cells are removed from underneath the skin without the need for surgery, needles, or long downtime. According to research by two Harvard dermatologists, selectively freezing fat, or adipose, cells reduced bulges of fat by 20 – 25 percent.
Patients that undergo CoolSculpting treatments typically require one to three treatments to reach their desired result. It has gained popularity over the years with celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan crediting their red-carpet ready bodies to the treatment.
You will first meet with a Coolscultping expert who will talk you through the treatment, ensure your suitable for treatment and answer any questions you may have. Marks are made on the area of stubborn fat you want treated to ensure the precise placement of the cooling applicator. This ensures optimum results are achieve.
An anti-freeze gel pad is placed on to the area of the skin to protect from ice burns during the treatment. The applicator head is then put into position and the vacuum is turned on to pull the fat inside. Once the bulge of fat is sucked in the cup, two cooling panels begin to freeze the area and numb the skin as it cools below 0 degrees. The fat cells freeze due to the controlled cooling without causing harm to the nerves, muscle, or skin.
A CoolSculpting treatment typically last around an hour, although some treatments may only take 35 minutes. A few treatments spread out over several weeks is generally needed to get desired results. During the weeks following the treatment, the body naturally eliminates the dead, frozen fat cells through the liver. You can gain 20 – 25 percent fat reduction in the targeted area per treatment.
What is 360 Fat Freezing
RT Aesthetics 360 fat freezing is a fat freezing treatment that utilises controlled cooling technology to get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat. The treatment results in a permanent reduction in fat cells underneath the skin by freezing them, similar to CoolSculpting, without damaging any of the surrounding tissue or cells.
Just like CoolSculpting, 360 fat freezing is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that treats fat bulges in a targeted area of the body that patients haven’t been able to get rid of through a healthy diet and exercise, such as the sides, stomach, and back.
The cooling technology of the fat freezing treatment has been around for a while now, but thanks to developments in the technology, more precise results can now be achieved, and treatments are becoming more affordable. 360 fat freezing offers even better results due to its use of the latest in fat-freezing technology, as compared to more traditional, older fat-freezing treatments. The technologically advanced, 360-degree precise cooling applicator provide a more even cooling process across the area of the body that’s treated.
How Does 360 Fat Freezing Work
RT Aesthetics 360 fat freezing works by drawing stubborn fat bulges gently into its 360 applicators and then cooling them to negative nine degrees. This cold temperature freezes and permanently destroys the extra stubborn fat cells within the targeted area, without causing any damage to the surrounding cells. The dead fat cells are safely eliminated from the body through the natural process of waste removal, resulting in a gradual reduction in the treated area’s layer of fat.
The 360 applicators are able to pull in more stubborn fat and freeze the area faster then traditional fat freezing machines. The area is then frozen all the way around the applicator (360 degrees) rather then 1 cooling plate at each side (180 fat freezing).
360 fat freezing provide long-lasting, visible, and measurable results in body sculpting without having to undergo surgery. During the treatment, around 25 to 30 percent of fat cells are typically eliminated from the targeted area.
RT Aesthetics 360 Applicators
RT Aesthetics use 360 freeze applicators, while normal applicators cool from two sides, the 360 applicators freeze the whole area, thus destroying more fat and targeting areas difficult to treat with standard applicators. The RT 360 applicator is guaranteed to destroy more fat cells in a single Cryolipolysis session then standard applicators. With advanced temperature control and larger surface area, the RT 360 applicator can produce better results in fewer sessions.

360 Fat Freezing or CoolSculpting?
Both 360 Fat Freezing and CoolSculpting are fat freezing devices used to remove unwanted stubborn fat from the body. 360 Fat Freezing is newer, and is often considered to be the better-performing device. That is not to say that CoolSculpting doesn’t still offer the desired results. CoolSculpting treatments typically take longer due to there only being one applicator head used, so only one area can be treated at a time, and more treatments are required after the procedure.
CoolSculpting offers great results in body contouring and non-surgical fat reduction, the new 360 Fat Freezing uses the newest and most advanced cooling technology that’s available today. This means that 360 Fat Freezing is often favoured over CoolSculpting in terms of results, efficiency and quicker procedure time.
360 Fat Freezing features 4 hand piece applicators, allowing up to 4 areas of the body to be treated at the same time, saving patients time and possibly money. The 360 applicators provide faster and more effective fat reduction.
Summary – 360 Fat Freezing or CoolSculpting
Due to 360 Fat Freezing been able to treat up to four areas at once and being more cost effective, the procedure is often preferred over CoolSculpting. Both 360 Fat Freezing and CoolSculpting offers desired results, so in many cases, which is better will largely depend on the treatment area, budget and availability in your area.
